Unfortunatelly here in Cali, do to the smog Nazis we are unable to swap engines that were not meant to be installed in the same chasis class or that do not have the California smog emission equipment. In other words, we can only swap the O.G. engine for another 4YE, 3YE and retrofit all of the upper parts from the 4Y or rebuild
You can always try your luck and swap it for an 22R engine, but you will need to take it to the CA referee and pray that he will accept your money to pass your swap undercover.
Come on man, a 4AFE really? How about 4AGE? or 4AGZE? (I know, I know, torque) But if I could get away with a modern powertrain I will consider:
2RZFE (94-04 Tacomas)
22RE (fuel Injected)
! I can dream right?)
